Band Pro Unveils New Line of IB/E Macro Lenses

IB/E Macro

Band Pro announced three new IB/E macro lenses. The lenses cover a full-frame sensor and come with three focal lengths: 100mm, 150mm, and 180mm.

As my friends at DicaHub (translated) points out, the lenses support PL mount, but have “adjustable flange focal distance”, which appears to mean that they will have interchangeable lens mounts. Canon EF and other mount types should hence be supported.

Band Pro Unveils New Line of IB/E Macro Lenses

IB/E President, Klaus Eckerl and Band Pro President & CEO, Amnon Band unveiled a new line of professional APO Macro FF lenses at Band Pro’s One World Open House event on December 10th, 2015.

The new macro lenses were designed to address the industry-wide movement toward larger format sensors (including RED Weapon 6K and 8K, Sony A7, and ARRI ALEXA 65 cameras).  These larger sensors deliver a convincing film-look and interesting bokeh due to their very shallow depth of field, and require lenses that can cover their larger camera sensor sizes.

The new APO Macro FF lens family consists of 3 focal lengths: 100mm, 150mm, and 180mm.  The lenses feature full frame (24mm x 36mm) coverage, 1:1 magnification, consistent T-stop T2.9, as well as robust and durable cine mechanics.  Based in Germany, IB/E is a globally respected optics manufacturer known for cutting edge expanders, adapters, and lenses, including the new Arri 65 lenses.

APO Macro FF lenses will be available Summer 2016.

Amnon noted at the event: “Today’s announcement is a continuation of what Band Pro has always done.  From the early days of Zeiss DigiPrimes, to our involvement with the Leica Summilux-C project, to the new IB/E Macro FF lenses, Band Pro has always lead the way for embracing new technologies.

To preorder the new APO Macro FF lens set, or for more information, please contact Band Pro at 1-888-BAND-PRO or by emailing [email protected] .
